A Welcome Autumn Breakfast with Free Printable Mini Chalkboard Banners

Some of the decor shared in this post was provided by World Market. All opinions and my profound love for all things World Market, are my very own.

Despite the near hundred degree temps and high humidity we have been having in Southern California, fall is upon us. Pumpkins and cinnamon and apples and lattes ~ the best flavors of fall!

I thought what better way to celebrate than with a beautiful “Welcome Autumn” breakfast! It’s fairly simple to put together and is sure to be a hit with the whole family.

Start out with a pretty display of your favorite signs of fall ~ pumpkins, apples, cinnamon sticks, wheat stalks, etc. Ella Claire shared a gorgeous autumn table display if you need some more ideas.

I chose to go with a simple centerpiece: a rustic wooden soda crate layered with my favorite white linen and lace runner, some colorful pumpkins and a pot of mums from my local grocery store.

Next choose a menu. I went with simple things that I know my children would enjoy but don’t get everyday.

Oatmeal in cute little pumpkin ramekins from World Market. You could even bake some yummy oatmeal in these!

I love these easy Omelet and Potato Bites from Ella Claire. They were incredibly easy to make and they freeze well, so you can just pop them into the microwave during the week for a quick, hot breakfast.

Of course you have to have pancakes.

My Perfect Autumn Pancakes, made with apple cider, pumpkin and pecans are a definite crowd pleaser.

Of course, I have a nut free version for my allergic son.

(Like the mini banners? You’ll be able to download those later in the post!)

Finish the meal off with some fresh fruit and a special drink. I simply bought bottled apple cider which I poured into these fun Country Jar Glasses from World Market, and garnished it with apple slices and a cute paper straw. You could serve cold cider or even hot chocolate!

My kids love any food they get to eat with a toothpick!

Be sure to set the table with special linens and dishes – you want this to feel different than your everyday breakfast, so break out the good dishes and the pretty linens.

Make the meal feel even more special by adding my pretty mini chalkboard banners. Just print on cardstock, cut them out, and attach toothpicks to the back. They are perfect for cakes, pies, and even yummy stacks of pancakes!

I’ve created mini banners to cover the whole autumn season, from general fall, to Halloween and Thanksgiving. Enjoy!
